Building for a Better Future
AF & AM
Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest secular fraternal societies, whose members are concerned with moral and spiritual values. Its members strive to exemplify integrity, honor, wisdom, love, trust, and knowledge, seeking to connect with other men of similar mindset. They are taught its precepts by a series of ritual dramas, which follow ancient forms and use stonemason’s customs and tools as allegorical guides. The essential qualification for admission is a belief in a Supreme Being.
